(Some Slow Guy)   MIT nerds figure out that certain light patterns slow down brain activity. Specifically, two blue columns, with a wider white column in the center. Now where have I seen that before?   (web.mit.edu) divider line 113

No. They figured out a way to use trangenes to inactivate certain parts of the brain with light.

Okay, I give up. Where HAVE we seen that before?

/didn't RTFA
//not even sure I read subby's headline
///slow brain activity, indeed

Heh, the Fark layout. Hahahahahahahahaha

/this explains some of the threads I've been in
 
2007-03-29 10:15:24 AM
heh.
What's odd is that it worked for a while. Must have a script looking at hits.

First, I was going to be all biatchy because I thought the submitter was referring to the Israeli flag, but the Fark layout does make more sense.

One tag below this one on the main page.

/whats my prize?

I'd take this opportunity to post pictures of trannies in jeans, but I don't think my workplace would think that it was cool.

Maybe I am color blind. I've always thought Fark had purple borders.

As ive seen a zillion of those lovely screens in the last 2 months, I thank you for bringing back nightmares.

Computer has been acting up hard. When I close my eyes I see an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD.

andbruno: You took "MIT nerds" and "light patterns," and somehow managed to pull "Israel" straight out of left field. Subby was dead-on.
 
2007-03-29 10:48:21 AM
Man I feel like an idiot now. This column thing was in another thread recently and I couldn't figure out. Sometimes the obvious is the most obscure.

nobodycaneatfiftyeggs: Best headline of the day?

I'll vote for that. God knows it took me a while.

Its a sort of dulled metallic blue-purple-gray.

Crayola has 'Fark' in their crayon set.

That's ok, the brain slowdown effect can be counteracted with beer!

Anyone who's not getting the headline ought to lean in toward their monitor as they are reading this, let their eyes blur a bit, and ponder for awhile.
I'ts like a stereogram!

Dynascape MSFT actually just released a patch for the IRQL BSOD. Unfortunately, that BSOD only accounts for half of the ones we've been receiving since we implemented full disk encryption.

In all seriousness, do they plan on inserting this gene into the malfunctioning cells? If we could get reliably targeted transgenic expression of new genes in old cells we could solve plenty of problems, and they wouldn't necessarily require a blue light to be inserted in your brain as well...
